for the working guys. For the other lucky souls, just another Saturday.

On a roll literally. More Taylor Pork Roll this morning, English muffin, Cooper Sharp cheese. Iced tea.

Burley Jim will man the coffee pot and select the beans as I don't use the stuff and supplement the menu with his usual educated palate.

In the mid-Atlantic we're just starting a week or so of on/off showers and storms with humidity thrown in. Don't want to contemplate if this was going on in January.

Spent lunch hour yesterday with the former president of the OPSIG who brought me up to date on some layouts of note (Jim Herzog's RDG Shamokin, and Ken McCorry's).

Good morning Larry and the rest of the RR-L Crew.

Just a quick breakfast of English muffin and tea as Mary and I are off to Champlain Illinois this morning on a quick round trip to pick up my repaired high end photo printer. Hopefully we make it back before the T-storms hit later today.

Everyone have a fun and safe day in the Train Yard.

Good morning Larry, Walt and the rest of the crew. It is partly cloudy and 66 degrees here in Holly, MI. We had some good rain over night - the grass will be happy.

I'm off to the recycling center to get rid of flattened cardboard boxes. Then off to find a new barber shop.

I worked for an hour last night adding some slides to one of my presentations for Kansas City.

Packing later today for the trip.

Have a great day!

Thanks for the open Larry-good morning. Lots of rain yesterday in central hoosier land-today foggy and muggy. No modeling yesterday but hoping to get back at it later today. Hope every one has a great day.

Hazy sun and calm weather this morning, going to hit mid 80s I read. The heat is coming back big time this weekend and Iím sure the super cooler will be roaring again for a few days.

Iím off shortly to my motherís, itís her 96th birthday. Iíve framed a print of a photograph I took of a bright red hibiscus blossom in her neighborís yard recently and am picking up a custom cake on the way.

I worked on another 15 feet of fascia yesterday, I have now about 25-30 feet that need to be painted, Iíve filled all the screw holes and addressed the joints. Probably paint later today.

Everyone have a good day. Travelers pack your sun screen, the beaches in KC might be rather hot.....

Thanks for opening the lounge on this fine middle of the week Wednesday.
Karl...a great big Happy Birthday wish for your mom. She must be a fine lady!
Just dropped my daughter off at the airport. She's flying to Europe to do a "Bike and Tall Ship" week around the Zeiderzee and then a second week with her sister biking the Loire Valley in France. Oh...to be young again!
I'm off to the garden railroad this morning to put some maintenance work in before our weekly Saturday ops session.
Have a great day all!

Good rainy morning from my NJ valley. I see we are into the usual hyper-weather reporting with flash floods, thunderstorms, etc. predicted.

Yesterday, I installed the skirting for the layout. It is amazing what a difference hiding all the crap underneath it makes!

I also worked on all the booklets for our convention. A lot of little adjustments due to changes in schedules. A pain in the neck. I can't wait until everything gets printed, since that means no more updates.

I might do some more work on the mine. I started to work on the steam pipes, again, when I got distracted with other things like the above. It would be nice to have that part done before the convention. After that, it is just a few small structures to build, which can wait until after the convention.

Good afternoon all! I've finished all my KC stuff, and am sitting down and enjoying a cup of coffee. I load the car later, and tomorrow morning, and start heading south then west. I cut back on two 'show and tell' things that I didn't need to go crazy with. So whatever is, is. This is supposed to be enjoyable, and 'vacation'. Which is kind of funny when half of the time I need to look at the computer to see what day of the week it is.

It's supposed to be a bazillion degrees in KC next week. mmmm. I'll leave the sweatshirt home.

Happy Birthday to Karl's mom! Karl you be a good boy.

Have a Super day!

Tom, recovery from shoulder surgery takes a long time. (A full year to 100%, a couple months to 80%). You'll be washing bottles for quite a while, I suspect.

We're back from 2 weeks in England and Scotland. It was supposed to be cool, but they had a heat wave for most of the time we were there. I did visit a couple train stores and got some goodies to bring home.
